Tips and Tricks to Freshmen Year - Hello newbies and freshmeat. I am just messing around; you won’t get the same treatment as some of you did high school, but you will still be very noticeable on campus. You will be the kids looking lost on the first couple days of school and you might walk in the wrong classroom once or twice, but trust me in a week or two, you will find your way. College in itself is a learning experience and even from day one when your parents leave,... http://ow.ly/2X56iy

My Advice to Freshmen: Make New Friends, But Keep the Old - Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. I had the most fun weekend! One of my best friends from high school, Jenna, came to visit me at USC! This was her first time visiting me here and we had a blast. While she was here, we went out downtown to celebrate my roommate’s birthday, we visited Santa Monica and Venice Beach, and I showed her around USC. It was awesome to see her and really fun showing off my lif... http://ow.ly/2X0AlM

Favorite Post Midterm De-stressors - The best thing about midterms is the relief when they’re over, particularly when you have really busy weeks. I just finished three midterms this week and even though I was confident in my knowledge of the material, tests tend be stressful for everyone. Sometimes it can be difficult to wind down after all your tests are done. Here are my favorite ways to celebrate the end of midterms and relax after all the hard work. 1) Eat something... http://ow.ly/2WTMLQ

Taking Classes Outside of Viterbi as an Engineer - Hey everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend. It was even more gorgeous and sunny than usual here in LA so I tried to spend lots of time outside! So even though this blog is all about Viterbi and my life as a Viterbi student, I thought I’d mix things up a bit this week and blog about my life outside of Viterbi. Specifically, I thought I’d cover non-Viterbi classes. Although as engineers, we primarily take classes in ... http://ow.ly/2WGZ0U

A Long Time Coming: Why I Chose USC - Hi everybody! This week, I thought I’d share a little bit about my college decision making process with you all.  Growing up with a dad who was a professor at USC and four older siblings who went here, I had a little bit of a head start in getting to know this school.  One thing about USC that completely captured my heart was always the school spirit! I used to come to a lot of USC football games growing up, and I was always complet... http://ow.ly/2WBX9j

Sarah’s Freshmen Year Survival Guide - Entering college, I was told time and time again that the years would fly by. I didn’t believe them. High school seemed to crawl along, and I didn’t think college would be any different. I was wrong. Having just registered for my last fall semester as an undergraduate, I’m facing the terrifying realization that I will soon be a senior. It doesn’t seem possible that the time has passed by this fast. Wasn’t I just a freshman not too ... http://ow.ly/2X7ovC

Dear Freshmen: Leave Your Comfort Zone! - It’s one of the most exciting times in your life: the beginning of college! There are so many new opportunities and people, it can be hard to just pick a few to work into your life. But one of the best things about freshman year is that you can try tons of new things, and if it doesn’t work out, then you can call it quits and try something else. Excited about my first robot for my Introduction to Computer Science class! Giving a... http://ow.ly/2X4sVn

Outdoor Study Spots - It’s April Spring type weather almost everyday in LA which means plenty of opportunities to be outside whether to relax or even study! Here’s a go to list of my favorite outdoor study/meeting places where it’s not too crowded, too noisy and has just the right amount of shade: 1.

Why I Chose USC - There were 4 main things I was looking for in my college experience. 1. Academics The first was that I wanted to go to a school with a rigorous engineering program because that was my intended study, but also had a good reputation for other academic programs like business and arts and sciences just in case I decided after getting to college that I didn’t want to pursue engineering. Viterbi has a very well ranked program, as does USC Marshall School of ... http://ow.ly/2WDwz2
